Alyssa Rose Sands (my newest niece!) 6lbs 1oz 19 1/2 in.
As for Kayla- she is doing well. She is still eating like a champ- but I predict a her slump to begin any time soon. I know that sounds awfully negative but she goes into her slumps often- she has a really great few weeks, then a really bad few weeks. She is eating her 1st foods now- she actually ate her whole cup full of sweet potatoes the other night and more than half of her carrots last night- mid point she pooped- and I can't let her sit in that so we stopped, changed and then she didn't want her carrots any more- but she did drink her whole bottle after. And she loves her sippy cup- not necessarily for drinking but chewing and holding :)
Tuesday she has her 6 month appt- shots and check-up. After all I have seen her go thru, the shots still make me sad to watch- so Jerry has to hold her and I love her after. She cries I think only because she is being held down. I don't think she cries because of the shots. She hates being held down- if she doesn't want her leg/arm where we are putting it she will freak out. :)
We are now trying to put her in her pack-n-play for naps as opposed to her swing or vibrating chair. We want her to associate the pack-n-play for naps and not the other two.. plus I'm scared to put her in her swing now- I still do bc sometimes that is the only way she'll nap but I'm just afraid she might be getting too big. So THANKS to my sister-in-law's parents for the seahorse!! She snuggles her face right up against it... so cute!
And I would like to say, I call her my sister-in-law... but really she has been my friend since maybe the 10th or 11th grade? She is a year younger than me, but when I was in 7th and she in 6th we both had a crush on the same guy. She won him- lucky girl haha... and then finally as we grew out of the crush for this boy we became friends as we played sports together and hung out with the same ppl... so she was my real good friend first- and I just wanted her to know that. I never know what to say when I mention her- do I say sister-in-law or friend? Anyway- I'm excited bc her and my brother and their cute Julian are coming home today- they live in NC. :(
Ok so I totally wanted this to be a SHORT post- but as you have noticed I don't do that often. haha I hope all is well out there- and if you've seen me comment A LOT lately- it's because I felt too often ppl are just commenting when something bad happens, or stop commenting when you get to take your baby home... so I'm really trying to comment on happy occasions too! :)
Best Wishes to All,
